We will be having a discussion about Projects that we are working on, but haven’t shared with the group. These can be projects that are successful or ones that just didn’t work out and have been abandoned. We’ll enjoy hearing about other’s projects, and perhaps even offer to help.
NetSIG is a Special Interest Group focused on computer networking. Building networks for Today and Tomorrow!
Last month we explored MACVLAN interfaces, and how it makes it easier for Linux Containers (LXD).
This month, BRING YOUR PI, and a 32 GB SD Card, and we’ll do a Linux Containers INSTALL FEST on your Pi.
We will be meeting in-person at Quality Foods (small boardroom upstairs), bring a laptop and have Wireshark installed. This will be hands on. PLEASE BRING an ETHERNET dongle/port as we will be ssh-ing into your Pi, and configuring Linux Containers.
In this session, we’ll demo the Go programming language. We’ll review the basics of the language, and how to get started with it. We’ll also look at some of the tools that are available to help you program in Go.
After using Linux Containers (LXD) for a couple of years, Craig will share how to easily get your containers connected to the internet using a MACVLAN interface. No reconfiguration of the host is required. This technique can be used on Pi’s as well as other hosts.
We will set up containers using the MACVLAN network attachment, discuss limitations, and even run LXDware, a web-based GUI for LXD on a Pi.
We will be holding a Hybrid meeting (in-person & Jitsi).
Jim will cover the details of Infra-Red Communications, including basic components (emitter & receiver), data encoding methods, external components & software, how to generate pulses, and how to receive pulses on the Pi Pico.
